Spring has sprung, and we are winding up for some great events over the next month! Forty-two years ago, Earth Day was established to create awareness and appreciation of our precious - and increasingly fragile - planet. Celebrated on April 22nd, Earth Day has over a billion participants around the world. Individuals, businesses, schools and governments commemorate what has been achieved and discuss what remains to be done to protect Earth. And even better news - over the years, Earth Day has evolved into Earth Week and Earth Month*. Environmental protection is a key element of the work that ERA does, so we have some exciting events over the next few weeks. Be sure to check out the event in your area!
